Part-maid cafe, part-dentist’s office? Akiba Dental Clinic to open in Tokyo

Akihabara is Tokyo’s most otaku-oriented district, stuffed with electronics stores, video game retailers, and anime specialty shops. Otaku themselves, though, often don’t call the place “Akihabara,” opting as a substitute for the abbreviated “Akiba.”

That’s something that a brand new dental clinic opening up within the neighborhood seems well aware of. It’s officially named Akiba Dental Clinic, and that’s not the one way by which it’s appealing to otaku tastes.

In listing what sets them aside from other dentists, Akiba Dental Clinic (or Akiba Shika, to make use of their full-Japanese name) mentions things like their convenient location and hours. They’re only a two-minute walk from the station, and so they’re open until 11 p.m., even on weekends. However the list also includes:

● Greeting patients in Akiba-style cute uniforms

● You possibly can practice brushing your teeth along with your favorite staff member!

Akiba Dental Clinic does also make some extent to guarantee prospective patients that it’s, indeed, a real dentist’s office, not some type of dental-themed cafe or cosplay club. Joji Yukawa, owner of Akiba Dental Clinic, is a graduate of Nagano Prefecture’s Matsumoto Dental University, and the clinic offers treatment for cavities and periodontal disease, in addition to dental implant, cleansing, and whitening services.

The clinic begins operations in earnest at first of July, but they held an open house, with a limited variety of polaroid photo opportunities with the staff last week. 

While one could cynically call the frilly outfits and trendy make-up marketing ploys, additionally they appear to be a part of the clinic’s efforts towards making the place somewhere patients will look ahead to visiting, no mean feat for a dentist’s office. Akiba Dental Clinic also mentions several times on its website and Twitter account that it understands that some individuals are afraid of going to the dentist, and could have been avoiding checkups or treatments for a very long time, but that anyone is welcome to are available in for a free consultation.
